Paleo Chocolate Protein Muffins

Paleo Chocolate Protein Muffins

They taste like healthy brownie bites! I’ve made 2 batches so far with the first being less sweet and more dark chocolate-y, and the second was sweeter and more pumpkin-y. I am posting the recipe for the more pumpkin-y recipe since those were a hit amongst my clients!
